New to BMWs. Recently purchased 2007 R1200RT with ESA and without the stereo.
According to the Rider's Manual to adjust the Spring Preload: 1) Start the engine, 2) Briefly press the ESA Button on the left handlebar, then Press and Hold the ESA Button until the display flashes then you can adjust the Spring Prelaod accordingly. On mine the display never changes, it stays in "2 Up". Is the problem with the electric motor that actually adjusts the preload?
Being that I am larger than the 180 some pounds specified in the manual this setting may be about right for me but I'd sure like to find out what's wrong with it.
